The scenic beach views from my room and the sound of the waves to wake up to was one of the exceptional experiences i had on my stays at The Zuri kumarakom.
The perfect rooms at the Coconut Lagoon Resort have all the amenities that I was in search for on my vacation for a comfortable stay.
Niraamaaya Retreats was all i could have asked for experiencing a stay surrounded by the tropical beauty of Kerala. The resort is a charm in itself and the package offered js no less. Worth a try!
We had a great time at this property. Actually we have booked it to celebrate new year away from the city's hussle. And we really had a memorable time over there. Our lake view room was filled with all the modern amenities and was clean and hygenic. We also loved their fitness centres with ayurvedic treatments. There was a small party in the evening to celebrate new year's eve. We had a lot of fun in that. All thansk to Thrillophilia for best deals with activities online.
Kumarakom Lake Resort is one of the most exotic location that i resided in on my vacation in Kerala. The property has an impressive unique design. Totally worth the price.
Stayed at the beautiful Kumarakom Lake Resort that is a charm in itself and also experienced several water activities. The resort also has a Ayurveda Spa where my experience was exceptional and soothing. All these activities, stay and meals were a part of the deal that I grabbed from the website of Thrillophilia at hefty discounts.
Excellent
I had heard about the The Zuri Kumarakom resort a lot but visited it recently with my bookings from thrillophilia. The cool sea breeze, beach and exquiste views of the sunrise and sunset makes this place worth residing in. I chose thrillophilia for this trip as they were offering me the best deal to this destination with bunch of other perks.
The lush green Niraamaaya Retreats Resort is one of the best experiences i ever had. The exquisite rooms, modern amenities, fitness center, rooms with views, swimming pool and other really added to the comfort on my stay here. This place is worth staying in and i availed it under the holiday package that i booked from Thrillophilia. The package was at its best price that i could not find anywhere else.
Stayed here for one night as a group of 7 people. Rooms were lovely we all had. A lot of us used the spa and had massages which were equally as lovely. Good selection of food, nothing too spicy. The rooms were clean and spacious, the aircon worked. Had a great time playing in the pool.
We hadn’t booked for an accommodation in advance and were searching for the same online at Coconut Lagoon Resort. The prices at each site were out of our budget but when we came across thrillophilia we saw the best and most discounted rates along with a lot of inclusions. We booked and got an instant confirmation for our stays. It was a great and fast booking experience I ever had.
